Both you and AC articulated what I was starting to *feel* regarding beta. I have so many users who rebel against upgrades just because they're different; I just wanted some good reasons why the beta sucks.

As I use it just a little bit, the UI was obviously designed by blind monkeys, or perhaps just committee. I have to scroll and scroll and scroll, and yet there is so much wasted space around comments. Add to that the fact that replies don't load automatically, and I have to populate the reply subject. I see nothing good about this "upgrade."

Perhaps I don't visit Slashdot as much as I used to, but I just looked at the site through beta to see what the fuss is about. Perhaps my eyes don't move in the right way, but is it the additional ads that I ignore on the right-hand side? I'm not defending beta, I'm just asking for additional education about what makes it so bad other than being different.

I tend to think too much when I write, so much of my output is bland and marketing-like. My initial post did sound like an ad. My apologies. I am a techie, but normal people prefer to talk to me because I can translate.

I just don't want people to dismiss WP out-of-hand because it's Microsoft. They have foisted plenty of crap products on an unwitting public, but the WP7 is not one of them. It's a good product, that isn't for everyone, but it doesn't suck.
